Sleep Disorders Defined

Among the sleep disorders we treat are:


Insomnia includes any combination of difficulty with falling asleep, staying asleep, intermittent wakefulness, and early-morning awakening. It may be triggered by a number of factors, including depression, anxiety, stress, poor sleeping environment, caffeine, alcoholism, heavy smoking, daytime napping, physical and medical conditions, and lifestyle habits.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Restless NightSleep Apnea occurs when an individual repeatedly stops breathing during sleep. The most common form of the disorder, OSA is caused by a blockage of the airways that prevents the flow of air in and out of the lungs, resulting in loud snoring and labored breathing. When complete blockage of the airway occurs, breathing stops or is impaired so drastically that the individual is prevented from reaching the deeper stages of sleep, resulting in extreme daytime drowsiness, fatigue or even symptoms similar to mood disorder.

Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless leg syndrome is characterized by sensations in the lower legs that make a person uncomfortable and cause the uncontrollable urge to move the legs in order to relieve the discomfort. This disorder commonly causes symptoms of tingling/numbness or cramps in legs; severe towards the evening hours. At times, a person may continue to have intermittent twitching of the legs or kicking once asleep that can interfere with the bed partner’s sleep. This condition can be worsened by stress and result in decreased quality of sleep.


exhausted at workNarcolepsy is characterized by sudden and excessive episodes of daytime sleepiness, as well as the brief loss of muscle control during the day, a symptom that can occur when waking up or falling asleep. Vivid dreamlike experiences that are difficult to distinguish from reality also may be experienced. This condition is dangerous because these episodes can occur at anytime, during any activity, even when working or driving a car.


Parasomnia involves sleep walking or episodes when a person acts out his or her dreams while still asleep. At times, it can be harmful to the person and the bed partner.
